Outfielder Cameron Maybin Signs Extension With San Diego Padres

March 4 (Bloomberg) -- Outfielder Cameron Maybin signed a contract with the San Diego Padres that carries him through the 2016 season, with a club option for the following year.

The Padres didn’t release terms of the deal. The contract is worth $25 million over five years, ESPN reported.

“It means a lot that these guys want me to be the face of the franchise, which I’m ready to be,” Maybin told the sports network.

Maybin, 24, started 132 games in center field last season and led the team in runs, triples, stolen bases and multihit games, earning him the Padres’ 2011 Most Valuable Player designation.

“Cameron has certainly emerged as a core player,” General Manager Josh Byrnes said on the team’s website. “He has shown us that he is committed to the Padres, and we are happy to secure his rights through 2017.”

Last season, Maybin hit .264 with 24 doubles, eight triples, nine home runs, 40 runs batted in and 82 runs scored. He also stole 40 bases in 48 attempts, posting an 83.3 percent success rate that ranked 12th in the National League.

Maybin, the Detroit Tigers 10th overall pick in the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, made his Major League Baseball debut in 2007. He was traded to the Miami Marlins before the 2008 season before going to the Padres in a trade for righthanded pitchers Ryan Webb and Edward Mujica on Nov. 13, 2010.

Over his career 305 Major League games, Maybin has a .255 batting average with 48 doubles, 13 triples, 22 home runs, 85 RBIs, 175 runs scored and 59 stolen bases.
